This years event is dedicated to our friend, Becky Rodgers.
She was with us in spirit, we miss you Becky.
1960 - 2019

Another great Rockhound Roundup has successfully come and gone. As always, lots of great friends and new friends were in attendance. In the past few years, I have been dedicating many of these roundup reports to our dear friends that we have lost, Lee Fleming, Rob Stine, John Deney and now Becky Rodgers. It makes me wish for the good old days when we were all young and healthy and on the hunt together. But we move on, and continue our mission of promoting this hobby to new generations.
